The feeling you get when you pull in the parking lot is one of complete serenity. The location is just a dream for any child. The school is in the lower and newly built part of a community church and is surrounded by beautiful grounds with tress, a creek at the back of the property and nature all around. the children are able to enjoy this environment through their "Nature Wednesday" classes where they explore outside and learn about a specific topic in nature. The often will have a lesson outdoors or do their reading time under the shade of a tree. The children are also given the opportunity to join some community events - for example, The local Charity Fun Run.
The school is a bit of an island, and I like it that way. Coming from the country, I was a bit concerned of how my bumpkin would adjust to a school within the city, but it is its own little paradise! The lush, HUGE, yard allows the kids lots of roaming space and a great area for soccer. Beautiful gardens and landscaping make it a bit ivy league looking but it is warm and welcoming.
The school is located next to a church and shares space with the church like the gym. The annual graduation and recital are hosted at the Church itself. The one feature of the school that one of our daughters truly enjoys is the size of their backyard, it's a half acre and kids practice running and games there. There's no play structure, which in our view, makes this part of the yard a safe one for kids to play. The are also field trips to the skating rink and park nearby and this year the kids will be offering a concert at the Seniors home nearby.
Great school location in Kanata. Beautiful grounds, with a large field to run around at recess. Access to the beautiful stone church for recitals, and the hall for refreshments afterward. Inside is warm and welcoming. Beautiful art from the school always decorates the walls. The school has a cozy feel. My son enjoys the music room and has access to the electric keyboards.
The school is located on a beautiful, large piece of land that has a large grass area for the students' activities. It provides a wonderful outdoor space. the school is in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Kanata north. It is safe and quiet and the school is set back from the road. The students use the surrounding community for some activities, like the Terry Fox run and skating, but everything that is needed is at the school.
